Recovering Lost Detail

It may be hard to see at times, but you are often capturing more information in a photo than you realize; the trick is learning how to find that detail. In this tutorial we go over a very simple solution to bring out detail in the Shadows as well as the Highlights.

For maximum detail and flexibility when editing your image, shoot in RAW 16bit format. If you are shooting Jpeg, you are losing out on an enormous amount of Color and Light information.
